Statement on the celebration of Diwali

“On behalf of the Green Party of Ontario, I’d like to wish all Ontarians and citizens of the world who are celebrating the festival lights, a very happy Diwali. 
Diwali reminds us of how fortunate we are to live in a province that is ethnically diverse and culturally rich. Today we should make a strong commitment to increase our understanding and compassion for others and to help those who are in need.
 
We wish for joy and peace on this special celebration of compassion, knowledge, tolerance and goodness.”
